Find your foodie soulmate in Charleston—will it be chicken biscuits slathered in sausage gravy or hush puppies with a side of honey butter? For a truly local experience, stay at the French Quarter Inn and book the Immersive Culinary Package, which includes a trip to a local farmers market and a private cooking lesson with Gullah culinary expert chef Benjamin Dennis.

When you get back, relive the fun with our favorite Southern recipes.

Make it all about olive oil and om with a weekend in bohemian Ojai. Tour a 150-year-old olive grove and pick up souvenirs, like olive oil face cream, at the Ojai Olive Oil Company. Work up an appetite with a private class at Arrow Heart Yoga, and then indulge at farm-focused restaurant Azu.

Perfect your Cajun cooking skills with an interactive dinner party in the Big Easy. Langlois culinary school will walk your girls through a four-course Cajun/creole meal (recipes included). The next morning, take advantage of NOLA’s creative brunch offerings, like the jazz breakfast at Commander’s Palace.

Make your own N’awlins menu at home.

Here’s the ultimate farm-to-table experience: go glamping in upstate New York at Camp Orenda and feast on open-flame cuisine, including wood-fired pizzas with homemade sauces and locally sourced toppings. All meals, plus fresh juices and seasonal fruits, are included with your stay, and the six canvas cabins on the property have electricity and wood-burning stoves.

For the dedicated cheese lover (cue Tina Fey singing, “workin’ on my night cheese”), head to curd country. At Door Artisan Cheese Company in Egg Harbor, you can meet master cheesemakers, tour aging caves, and sample the goods, plus taste local wines. Also in Egg Harbor, the Door County Trolley runs a delectable Bloody Mary & Brunch Tour.

Pair your foodie interests with top-notch Cabernets in California wine country. Go winery hopping and then stay at H2 Hotel, where your crew can indulge in farm-to-spa treatments, such as herbal wraps made with local produce. The hotel’s acclaimed restaurant Spoonbar does a handmade pasta night each Sunday with an all-inclusive price—so easy to split the bill that way.

Nashville, Tennessee

Music City has now overtaken Sin City as the top bachelorette destination in the U.S., and we think it has something to do with all the tasty bites in town. Rather than a bar crawl, we propose a fried chicken tour: hit up Prince’s Hot Chicken (practically a rite of passage), Husk (for a more formal meal) and Pinewood Social (for Vietnamese wings and bowling).

Mmm…Vietnamese wings.

School the groom and his bachelors with your barbecue skills by enrolling in a class at BrisketU (yes, that’s real). If you stay at Hotel Saint Cecilia, you can cool off by the pool after class. Plus, you’ll be in striking distance of some of the city’s best eateries in the South Congress District.
